Matthew and Tessa Desmond
Just Shelter was founded by Matthew Desmond and Tessa Lowinske Desmond to raise awareness of the human cost of the lack of affordable housing in America and to amplify the work of community organizations working to preserve affordable housing, prevent eviction, and reduce family homelessness.
Eviction stories and photographs were collected by Matthew Desmond, , Natalie Nogueira, In Paik, and Sandra Park. Natalie Smith shot the video footage. The database of community organizations was compiled by Matthew Desmond, Alondra Ramirez, and Jasmin Salazar
